On Wednesday, January 21, a day before Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences unveil their nominees for the 81st Annual Academy Awards, Golden Raspberry Award Foundation have come out with their selection of contenders for the 29th Annual Razzie Awards. Among the nominees, "Disaster Movie" seems to be the awards early favorite as it was given six gongs, including Worst Picture.

Collecting also Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel, Worst Director(s) and Worst Screenplay, the Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer's comedy was nominated alongside "Meet the Spartans", "The Happening", "The Hottie and the Nottie", "In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale" and "The Love Guru" in the Worst Picture category. Beside those counts, it also nabbed two Worst Supporting Actress nods for Carmen Electra and Kim Kardashian.

Following close behind "Disaster Movie" with five gongs each were "The Hottie and the Nottie", "In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale", "The Love Guru" and "Meet the Spartans". Other movies up for the dis-honor include "Witless Protection", "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" and "Meet Dave". The latest received two nominations for its leading actor Eddie Murphy for Worst Actor and Worst Screen Couple.

Created by John Wilson in 1980, Razzie Awards or known also as The Golden Raspberry Awards was intended to counterpoint the Academy Awards by honoring the worst acting, screenwriting, songwriting, directing, and films. The 'winners' of the 29th Annual Razzie Awards will be announced at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in Hollywood on Saturday, February 21, the eve of the 81st Academy Awards.
